Today while volunteering at the Faculty Appreciation Luncheon, I was mentioning that it was always the same people who did things. The PTA president said it went beyond that. Last year, some of the parents had a private investigator do background checks on the PTA board thinking that it was stealing money. They found quite the opposite.
It is a low-income school. There is little parent involvement. The few parents who volunteer put in a lot of their own money to make good programs happen.
